SUPER STATE STRATEGY
North Carolina would be a groundbreaking victory for Democrats in 2020.
Republican Senator Thom Tillis’ U.S. Senate seat is highly vulnerable in 2020 and key to winning a Democratic majority in the Senate. Engaging voters in North Carolina now will help us win in 2020!
What's at stake
GerrymanderingIn 2018, a federal court ruled that all 13 of North Carolina’s congressional districts were unconstitutionally gerrymandered in favor of the GOP.
In 2019, the state’s gerrymandered maps went to the U.S. Supreme Court. While the Supreme Court didn’t set a standard for gerrymandering in their ruling, North Carolina’s state court threw out the maps.
Legislators are currently redrawing fair maps for 2020, which will be reviewed by the State Supreme Court.
In the long-term, flipping the state legislature by voting in Democrats who will pass legislation and draw fairer maps is one of the strongest ways to end gerrymandering in North Carolina.
North Carolina state law doesn’t protect people in the LGBTQ community against housing or employment discrimination.
Some progress on LGBTQ rights has been made recently in North Carolina. The notorious anti-trans bathroom bill (created by the state GOP) was repealed in 2017.
But to truly protect the rights of LGBTQ North Carolinians, progressive legislation needs to be passed. We need your help flipping the General Assembly so we can make these protections happen!
In North Carolina, people seeking an abortion are required to undergo anti-abortion counseling, a 72-hour waiting period, and a mandatory ultrasound.
North Carolina also requires parental consent for minors seeking an abortion.
The best way to protect and expand access to abortion in North Carolina is voting in more Democrats to the state legislature.
